This station started out as KIX 94 FM, a country station. Later, KIX (KIXQ) was moved down the dial to 102.5 FM, replacing another country station, Country KAT (KJKT), at that frequency. The station was relaunched as an AC station, "Magic 93.9". Later, the station transitioned to "Lite Rock 93.9".
On March 2, 2012, KJMK changed their format to classic hits, branded as "Classic Hits 93.9". This leaves Joplin without an adult contemporary station.
